Silver Medal for Joan at the IIBD World Championships
“A fantastic end to the tournament for team New Zealand at the IBD World Championships, picking up a Gold and Silver on the final day on the tournament. Lynda Bennett from Te Awamutu in the Waikato and Joan Ware from Palmerston North Bowling Club, won Silver in the B7/8 Ladies Pairs. This was a fantastic effort by the girls just missing out on the gold to Australia by a 5 shot differential over 6 matches.
Lynda Bennett went straight from her pairs final match to compete for the Gold in the Ladies Singles B7/8 classification. This time it was Gold. A brilliant come from behind victory by Lynda.” from http://www.nzdisabledbowls.110mb.com/news.html
